Indications

Zomig Nasal Spray is a medication used for the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura in adults and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older. It is only intended to be used to treat an acute migraine attack and is not used for prophylactic therapy or mixed headaches.

Zomig contains the active ingredient zolmitriptan. Zolmitriptan belongs to a group of medicines called triptans and is used to treat migraine headaches. It works by widening the blood vessels in the brain, helping to relieve headache, pain, and other migraine symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.

Uses and Dosage

Zomig Nasal Spray comes in 2.5 mg and 5 mg doses and is administered as a nasal spray. Use one spray into one nostril at the first sign of a migraine. Do not take multiple doses of the medication if there isn't any improvement in your migraine symptoms. You can use another dose of the medication at least two hours after the first dose if the symptoms are only partially relieved or if the headache returns.

To use Zomig Nasal Spray, gently blow your nose and avoid spraying the medication into your eyes. Remove the protective cap and press firmly on one side of your nose to block one nostril. Insert the tip of the spray device into the other nostril and inhale gently while pressing the plunger. Tilt your head slightly backwards and breathe through your mouth for 5-10 seconds after using the spray. Some wetness or a slight taste after using the medication is normal.

The recommended initial dose of Zomig Nasal Spray (Zolmitriptan) is 2.5 milligrams (mg), which is one spray into one nostril. Another spray (either 2.5mg or 5mg) may be used for a migraine that persists or a new one that occurs within 24 hours of the first dose. The maximum recommended dose of Zomig Nasal Spray in a single day is 10mg, which is four sprays. Do not use the spray for more than 10 days in a row, as it may make your headaches worse (medication overuse headache).

If you are at a higher risk of heart problems, your doctor may perform a heart exam before you start taking Zomig Nasal Spray. Your doctor may also direct you to take your first dose of the medication in the office or clinic to monitor for serious side effects such as chest pain.

  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding: Zomig should be used with caution during pregnancy and lactation, as there is limited information available about its safety in these populations.
  • Elderly patients: Zomig should be used with caution in elderly patients, as they may be more susceptible to certain side effects.
  • Drug interactions: Zomig can interact with other medications, including other triptans, ergotamines, and certain antidepressants. Inform your healthcare provider about all medications you are taking before using Zomig.
  • Overuse: Overuse of Zomig can lead to medication overuse headaches, which can be difficult to treat and may require stopping the medication.
  • Driving and operating machinery: Zomig can cause dizziness and drowsiness, which may impair your ability to drive or operate machinery. Avoid these activities until you know how Zomig affects you.
